I found the second of the Hellfire Mysteries to have gone back into standard Regency themes.... wealthy widow, dastardly villain who wants to abduct and force her into a marriage and a hero who doesn't feel he deserves to woo his friend's widow. Nothing really new here and again the writing is quite tame.

Very stilted and awkward narrative style. Felt amateurish. Pretty predictable characters. I ended up skimming the second half of the book just to see what happened with the suspense/mystery. And it's only because I was semi-interested in the story that the book earned more than one star.
